The main objective of this workshop is to apply the principles of Soil Mechanics to the design and analyses of geotechnical structures and enable participants to select the best foundation solution for different types of civil engineering problems. After completing the course, participants should be able to design deep and shallow foundations and supervise their construction. The course philosophy is to provide the participants with the information they need to design foundations.
The information is supplied in a simple and systematic way, discussing topics where current knowledge is lacking and more understanding is needed. With the instructor’s long experience in design, construction and teaching of the foundation engineering topics, you will get the maximum benefits you are looking for.

Characterization of natural deposits, subsurface investigation, field measurements.
Design procedures for settlement and stability of shallow and deep foundation systems in soil and rock.
Design of excavations and retaining structures; slopes and embankments.
Seepage through dams and landfills and the control of seepage through the use of filters and low permeability layers including the use of geosynthetic liners and filters.
Target Audience

Consultant, structural, civil engineers, college and university faculty, public works and construction department employees of federal, provincial and municipal governments; engineers responsible for large industrial, commercial or institutional facilities who must deal with different types of foundations.

Some familiarization with soil mechanics is desirable but the knowledge is not required at a specialist level. The course will be most beneficial to geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, foundation designers, project engineers, and highway/bridge engineers who are involved.
